"In Walked Love," "Undivided Love," "Back to Love," "Goodbye to Love," "I Gave You My Love" -- these are the deep thoughts coursing through Naked's veins. Now, filler-to-singles ratios are normal for the vapid R&B-flavored pop market, especially in Europe. But Louise Nurding's first post-Eternal effort somehow seems to spike the normal levels of vacancy. There likely isn't a live instrument on the entire record -- Naked is cloying synths from head to toe, with robotic backup singers on call to support Louise's thin lead vocal. Its suggestive title and Nurding's undeniable sex appeal should carry a few of these cuts on to the charts. But if this is the best she has to offer, Louise's future as a diva looks flimsier than a Simone Pérèle camisole.
